Weirdo

June 22, 2012

I’m weird.

I headed various “Weirdo Clubs” in my elementary school days, have always been called weird by others (even now, with my toe shoes, for my nonconformist views, etc), have always known I was weird and embraced it.

But do you know what weird ACTUALLY means???

It doesn’t merely mean ‘strange’ or ‘different’…

Weird
1. involving or suggesting the supernatural; unearthly or uncanny.
2. fantastic; bizarre.
3. Archaic: concerned with or controlling fate or destiny.

Words are often surprising when you dig deeper… there tends to be an unspoken/subconscious level of truth you uncover when you explore their literal and historical meanings.

  1. Still, it all fits “unorthodox” or “unconventional.” Hmmm.

    And, yes, digging into the roots of a word is always a revealing practice.

    Now how about the word “freaky,” which used to be synonymous with “weird” …

    Whatever, be original … as in true to your origins.

    Cheers!

    Yup. I’m proud to be weird. If normal is believing the lies of the media and living in fear then I sure as heck don’t want to be normal.
